Natural Touring is gearing up for its biggest year yet, with the announcement of two shows for its hugely popular, Natural New Zealand Music Festival.
The largest showcase of premier Kiwi music outside of New Zealand, Natural NZ Music Festival, will this year appear for the fourth time at Perth’s Red Hill Auditorium on Saturday November 22 and for the first time ever at Brisbane’s iconic Riverstage on Saturday November 29.
Natural Director, Brian Terry, says that after four years, it was time to add an additional show to the bill and is stoked to take this special all-Kiwi music event to the next level.
"It's really exciting to bring Natural to Queensland because when I originally dreamt up the concept in 2010, I was one of many thousands of Kiwis living in the Sunshine State, so I know the place well,” says Brian.
“Queensland has the highest population of cuzzies in the country, so it just makes sense," he says.
Having already showcased top NZ acts in the past, the 2014 Natural NZ Music Festival line-up is its best yet, featuring rock powerhouse, Shapeshifter, NZ music legend, Dave Dobbyn, reggae-funk outfit, The Black Seeds, roots-reggae heavy weights, House of Shem and Sons of Zion, hip-hop masters Scribe and P-Money, as well as pop-rock songstress, Anika Moa.
“The success of this festival really is a testament to Kiwi passion for their homeland and our music is an important way that we stay connected with Aotearoa (New Zealand),” says Brian.
"I think we have genres sorted this year as reggae, Hip-Hop and DnB are so strong at the moment and we have some big guns repping all of those, plus a couple of legends in Dave Dobbyn and Anika Moa.”
